I’ve finally finished the spiral quilting on my current UFO, and it was quite hard going, I must say, but I kept on persevering. My walking foot didn’t seem to performing properly, and I assumed it was pulling at the back because I had to keep turning the quilt in a circle. But……….at the end of my quilting marathon when I started to remove the walking foot it fell down into my hand, and it seemed obvious that I hadn’t inserted it correctly in the first place! How stupid is that! All that trouble, and it was my error right from the start. What kind of quilter am I?
Luckily, all the frequent pressing over my quilting lines on both the back and front seems to have “ironed out the problem”, so to speak. The next step is to prepare the binding and sew it on.
I had decided that this new fangled spiral quilting wasn’t for me, after the problems I had with the tension. But I will give it another go, I think, making sure my walking foot is attached properly next time. What a dummy – I can’t believe I did that!
